Input wanted: teaching virtue through literature

Maureen Wittmann wants some help:

I'd like to talk about teaching virtues through literature. And I would like your input.

Here are the seven virtues:

Humility (modesty)

Kindness (admiration)

Forgiveness (composure)

Diligence (zeal/integrity/labor)

Charity (giving)

Temperance (self-restraint)

Chastity (purity)

What books would you recommend to go with one or more of these virtues? Let's get a list going for everyone in the family -- preschool, grade school, middle school, high school, and adult.

She says she'll be posting the compiled list for free download here.

Go here to make suggestions.
